Windows Defender expires today
For those of you using Windows Defender just wanted to remind you that the old version expires today.  Microsoft has a new version available for download at Windows Defender Update.

We have received a report from one of our readers that his Windows Defender install just stop working, no warning other than a service failed to start. Thanks for reporting this to us Karl. Is anyone else seeing this behaviour?

If you are running Windows Defender you may want to do the update today. 

Update:  It has been brought to our attention that Microsoft Windows Defender is no longer intallable or supported for Windows 2000.  Microsoft states that W2K is out of lifecycle and is no longer supported.  So those of you running Windows Defender on Windows 2000, you will need to look for another program.
